E Track & Load Locks

E Track & Load Locks

Mytee Products may specialize in flatbed trucking and cargo control, but dry goods vans are not forgotten. We also carry an inventory of E track ratchet straps, cargo nets, accessories and more for interior cargo control. Maintaining proper control of cargo is just as important in a dry goods van as it is on the back of a flatbed trailer. The E track system you use makes all the difference in the world.

Interior cargo control begins with e-track. Not only do we carry galvanized e-track in 5-foot sections, we also carry the beams and load bars that work with it. We offer heavy-duty cargo nets, load bar pads, tiedown fittings, tie off ropes, pull straps, and a complete inventory of buckle and ratchet straps. Just about everything you need for interior cargo control can be found in our E Track accessories online inventory. If we don't have something you need, do not hesitate to contact us anyway. We can probably find it for you.

Meaning of E-track Straps?

E-tracks are cargo security systems inside cargo vans and enclosed trailers.

These systems restrain partial loads to the walls of the enclosed space, so the cargo doesn’t tumble or jostle back-and-forth during transport. E-track systems are slotted, stainless steel tie-down rails that run along the perimeter of the interior walls of the trailer or van.

E-tack straps are belts made of polyester webbing, designed to be pulled taut over loose cargo and secure your products firmly to the wall.

There are two kinds of straps:

  1. E-track ratchet straps and,
  2. E-track cam straps.

These straps are also sometimes called e – track tie down straps,

It’s easy to click the straps into place. E-track straps are fitted with end hardware (either ratchet buckles or cam buckles) specifically designed to be compatible with the tie-down rails.

E-track straps are color-coded by length. Straps have a range of weight load limits, so it can be wise to invest in heavy duty straps.

Meaning of Load locks

Load locks are sometimes called load bars, load lock holders, or cargo load locks.

These load locks are adjustable steel rods with pads on both ends. They’re designed to shore loose pallets to prevent them from tipping over during transport. Load bars use a spring mechanism to apply varying degrees of pressure to a piece of cargo. Load bars lock a piece of cargo into place when they’re positioned horizontally, with each end pressing against the interior walls.

Once in place, the bar creates a sort of “pen,” a fenced-in area for a particular piece of loose cargo. It acts like a fourth wall, creating a smaller enclosed space with the two longest interior walls and the back wall (the interior wall closest to the cab of the van or truck).

Load lock holders have a higher horizontal working load limit than e-track straps. Creating a sub-enclosure with a load bar lets you contain and secure loose cargo that’s too heavy or large to secure with e-track straps.

Where can I use e-track straps?

You can use e-track straps if you have a steel e-track rail system installed inside your van or enclosed trailer.

E-track straps have a working load limit range of about 500 lbs to 1500 lbs. If your loose cargo weighs over 1000 lbs, an individual e-track strap isn’t a safe method of securement. Instead, you’ll want to use a tool with a higher WLL, like a load lock, or an explicitly heavy-duty strap. Or, you can combine multiple e-track straps to create a cumulative higher load limit.

How can I use e-track straps and load locks effectively?

To make sure you’re getting the most out of your e-track straps and load locks, keep these pointers in mind:

  • Check the weight of your cargo -

    Make sure your loose cargo doesn’t exceed the weight load limit of your e track strap or load lock bar.
  • Choose the type of strap that best suits your needs -

    Ratchet straps are more versatile because they have more end fitting options, and they’re great for heavy-duty products. Whereas cam buckle straps are better for slightly fragile products that could take damage more readily, and can’t handle as much pressure or tension from the strap.
  • Use a cargo net for additional security -

    Cargo nets have a variety of end fitting options. These nets cover the back opening of your van or trailer during transport, giving you an extra layer of security.
  • Size wisely -

    Choose the length of your strap based on your cargo’s size.
